Jimena de la Frontera is a steep, open, and more pleasant town than Castellar de la Frontera. It is straggling on a hill to meet a fantastic Moorish castle. On the drive into town, on Avenida de los Deportes, the Restarante-Bar Cuenca has delicious tapas. It’s possible to drive almost to the top to the castle, although it’s quite a tight squeeze and very steep. The view from the Moorish castle is marvelous, and, if you think ahead and stop by a supermarket, it’s a nice place to picnic.
The station is about two kilometres below the town and there are some very cheap [and acceptable] places to stay near it.
